History and heritage is very much alive in the southern section of the county. This is where William Penn founded Bucks County in 1682, and established his own 43-acre country estate, Pennsbury Manor, one of our most spectacular historic sites.
If you like peering into the past, you'll love the village of Fallsington, founded over 300 years ago; the Mansions along the Delaware; the Grundy Museum; and Washington Crossing Historic Park, where on Christmas night 1776, George Washington and the Continental Army crossed the icy Delaware River and changed the course of a revolution.
Spend the day with Big Bird, Elmo and Cookie Monster at Sesame Place, an interactive theme park for kids. Or take a trip to Snipes Farm & Nursery, where you can pick your own apples and turn them into homemade cider and candy apples.
In addition to family fun, the region hosts exhilarant, year-round live Thoroughbred racing at Philadelphia Park Racetrack, featuring an outdoor picnic grove that lets you grill while enjoying the thrill of racing at its best. New last year is the Philadelphia Park Casino and hundreds of slot machines. You can also enjoy tours and tastings at local wineries, the comfort of our finest B&Bs and some great dining at the Brick Hotel and Garden Grille, Washington Crossing Inn and Yardley Inn Restaurant and Bar.
